Does it bother anyone here when you see a woman wear their pajama bottoms/lounge pants out in public ? It drives me crazy. I have plenty of them, but I wear them at home.

Doesn't bother me...I would wear them to the grocery...etc. Not much different than sweats.

I do what is called block sleeping. So, I may crash for about 2-5 hours and then get up and go get my kid. I will wear the bottoms to go get my kid. In the winter, I might even wear the top and bottom and throw on a jacket. I set my alarm to the last minute available and then hit the road. Brush teeth, grab purse and drive. I am on a countdown until I can crash again.

I have worn pajama bottoms to clean my house and then taken out the trash to the dumpster. If I'm going to end up getting cleaner on clothing then it should be clothing that I do not really wear. I do not wear them in a store. I have been known to have to stop and get gas. Muttering not so nice words for not paying attention the night before.

Exactly! I wear yoga/pj bottom type sweats/sleep pants pretty much all the time. They are comfy, and frankly, I have been married 11yrs now, I really don't give a flying fig what anyone thinks what I look like (except me and hubby, lol!), so I don't care. I dress in what I am comfy in, not what is stylish or what others think I should wear. When they are buying me clothes and paying my bills, I will care; till then no way.

Doesn't bother me, either. I don't wear my jammies off my own property, but I'm not going to get all bent out of shape if someone else wants to.

I have to say, I've never seen an adult woman wearing pajama bottoms in public. I have been known to wear them if I am just driving my son to school on a bad weather day but I always think how mortified I would be if for some reason I needed to get out of the car! Fortunately the school is only a few blocks away....I have seen kids and teens wear them around and I think it's kinda weird to run around in your PJ's - just gives the appearance of laziness. It is different than sweats or yoga pants.....

Well, I've got a pair of red plaid pants that look like pajamas... But I've been known to wear my Pirates of the Caribbean or my Thumper pajamas when I'm out in public.... I've also walked out to my car in my thermal penguin jammies as well.

I feel the same way. My neighbor goes out to the store to buy cigarettes and get gas in her cute cartoony pj's. If I was going somewhere like the bank drive thru, pharmacy drive thru, I could see it. But when I see women walking around in stores like that, it drives me crazy.

Oh well, to each their own.

I think the "appropriateness" depends on the situation. When I was in college, people used to wear PJ's to their 8am classes. No one really cared. Also, it don't think it really matters at places like the grocery store.

What bothers me is women who wear lounge pants with heels. That just doesn't work. You can't "dress up" loungewear. Do not pretend that your lazy butt is stylish!

It doesnt really bother me, but to me it gives an impression of someone who doesn't care for her person. I'm not saying people who do ARE sloppy and unkempt, just that they give the appearance of that. I would never do it, myself.
